      Answer

      You are only limited by the output of the amplifier you use. This is what an amplifier does. It does not get you receive extra signal, instead it ensures your tv receives the same signal as your antenna reiceves. As signals travel down any length of wire they loose strength. I have a clearstream c1 antenna (no amplifier) hooked into a rca preamplifier (17dbm gain) and run 100 ft of coxial just fine. If you use RG6 coxial, you will loose around 4-6db of signal per 100ft. So you need an amplifier over 6db. Also note that the tuner in your TV has a loss of around 8db. A two way splitter is a loss of 3.5db. So if you have a 2- way splitter and 100ft of cord, you will need an amplifier with a gain of around 17.5 db.

        Answer

        It varies for every address. You can purchase a 60 mile antenna but if you live in an area with lots of hills and/or mountains your signal could be blocked partially or completely! We suggest that you google "what channels will I get with an antenna" and look for an address scan tool that will allow you to put your COMPLETE address in for analysis. Just because the box says XX mile range it is dependant on the line of sight to the towers, distance from the towers and placement of the antenna itself.

        Answer

        The only difference between the Air 60 and the Sky 60 is that the Air 60 is made exclusively for Best Buy. That's also why the shape of the antenna head looks different. The performance of the antennas should be exactly the same.

        Answer

        If your home has an existing coaxial network you can locate the hub, connect the Sky 60 and that will send signals to the other coax ports in your home. If your home is not "cable ready" you can purchase a splitter that will allow you to connect the Sky. Using the home's coaxial network is by far the easiest way if that is an option for you.

      Is there difference between Mohu Sky models MH110585 and MH110601? Also do storming weather, snow or windy condition affect signal strength and reception?   (2 Answers)

        Answer

        There is no difference between the two antennas other than the product number. Different numbers are assigned for different retailers but the antennas are the same. Yes weather can affect over the air transmission similar to satellite reception. Reception can sometimes fade in and out and you may experience pixilation but mostly during very severe weather. It's all about the signals getting disrupted as they are traveling from the towers to your antenna.

      When mounted outdoors, does the Mohu-Air 60 require an exterior electrical outlet?   (5 Answers)

        Answer

        It does not. If you do not have the set up that the "community answer" guy added below you can add the amplifier to the back of the television if needed. You may find that you need one amplifier for each television that you connect but if exterior powering is an issue this is a way to work around it.

      I've used two high-end Terks, both of which don't work that well and require frequent readjustment. For a few years I've been using Mohu's amplified Leaf, and it's been the best thing I've used so far. Wondering if the Air would work even better (indoors)   (2 Answers)

        Answer

        It totally depends on the signals that are available in your area. If your signals are all about the same distance from you adding the Air wouldn't pull in more stations. However if there are signals out of range (50 mile) of the Leaf then the Air (60 mile) may pull in a few more stations for you. Google "what channels are available in my area" and look for a site tool that will allow you to enter in your complete address. If there are stations between 50 - 60 miles from your address that you are not getting with the 50 mile range antenna a 60 mile range antenna may pull them in for you.
